I grew up in Rockdale with Don. A great guy so sorry I had see more of him in later years. Jennie was a cousin of mine as well. I say Don last at Market Basket in Oxford
and remember the short visit well. He is now with Mom and Jennie. I only wish you had calling hours for I would have liked to tell the family how much I liked Don and remember well those days growing up in Rockdale.

I am so sorry for your loss, especially during the holiday season. I always feel like there should be a better word or saying that expresses the devastation at losing a loved one. You’re all in our thoughts and prayers. I’m most grateful I had the opportunity to have a nice conversation with him when I did, as it’s been so long since I’d seen him❤️

Condolences to the Malo family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to your whole family. Psalms 147:3 says God, "heals the broken hearted, and binds up their wounds." to May God bring you comfort and peace.

I just found out today about Dons passing. I am so sorry for your loss. Don and I were very good friends since 1974. We would sometimes meet and just talk, I always enjoyed him as he always had a smile on his face. I will visit him at the cemetery as I stop there evry week to say hi to my parents and grandparents. Once again, " I am very sorry "
